“Kou means ‘yours’ in Hawaiian. The Kou Ballroom is intended to make guests feel like the space is truly their own during the time they spend in it,” notes Catherine Johns, Director of Catering and Convention Services for Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach. “Our mission is to provide event planners and attendees with a sense of authentic urban aloha. We’ve created a ‘home away from home’ for them to enjoy, complete with state of the art technology and exquisite design.”

Waikiki’s Newest Wedding & Event Space
The ballroom will feature distinct design details from architecture firm Seifert Murphy. Elements of coral stone and porcelain tile will accent the ballroom’s custom-designed carpet, stone-topped conference table, sculptural wall art, and wood finish, creating a stylish atmosphere for impressive meetings and events while still providing authentic Hawaiian hospitality.

Meeting planners utilizing the ballroom will also be given the opportunity to enjoy Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach’s sustainably-focused food and beverage program featuring “Food: Thoughtfully Sourced, Carefully Served.” Menu items adhering to this philosophy are created by Executive Chef Sven Ullrich to feature locally sourced ingredients and inspired combinations, ensuring offerings are good for guests, good for the community, and good for the planet.

A Special Package for Waikiki Weddings
Hawaii has long been a place for romantic weddings and elopements, and, in celebration of the new ballroom, the resort has launched a new package dubbed “Too in Love to Wait.” This wedding special allows guests to choose from a farm-to-table menu for their big day as well as seven incredible wedding add-on incentives, including enough Hyatt Passport points to spend a honeymoon at nearly any Hyatt hotel. This offer is available to couples with a minimum $10,000 food and beverage spend who book and hold their wedding before December 31, 2013. Details are available by calling 808.237.6230.
